IDW comic Darkness Visible is heading to television

Darkness Visible

IDW Entertainment has announced that they are developing, financing, and producing a television series based on the comic book mini-series Darkness Visible, which was created by Mike Carey and Arvind Ethan David.

The series promises to be "a supernatural thriller with a razor-sharp political edge", mixing a story of demons into "a meditation on race, immigration, terrorism and politics in a world radically different, but also scarily similar to our own."

In the world of Darkness Visible, 

demons helped the Allied powers win World War 2, and humanity has reluctantly agreed to share the world with another sentient race. Sixty years later, this uneasy co-existence has spawned an endless terrorist conflict. Detective Daniel Aston, charged with being the thin blue line between the two sides, is tested to the limit when a demon sets up house inside his soul. 

I've never read an issue of Darkness Visible, but the story sounds interesting. IDW Publishing just released a trade paperback collection of the series today - if you'd like to pick up a copy of that, you can do so on Amazon.

David will be executive producing the TV series under the Ideate Media production banner, alongside Carey, Cavan Ash, Trevor Macy of Intrepid Pictures, and IDWE's Ted Adams and David Ozer.
